It's #MuseumSelfie Day, and Jay Z is winning. The rapper posed for this photo at the Andy Warhol Museum last night where he takes a page from the blonde pop artist, posing on The Factory's infamous couch. 

Legend has it that the couch was found on the street by American photographer Billy Name and became a popular crash pad for Warhol's many friends. It also appeared in Warhol's films Couch and Blow Job. 

The photo above was taken by Lenny S., aka "The Kodak Man" for Jay Z. Lenny S. has been working in the entertainment industry for a long time, mostly handling the creative process artists go through to record an album. His Instagram is filled with big names like Jay, Beyonce, Drake, Diddy, and others. 

Along with this photo of Jay, Lenny S. includes a quote from "Picasso Baby." The caption on Instagram reads, "'I'm the new Jean-Michel, surrounded by Warhol, my whole team ball'. -Picasso JAY x WARHOL."
